About

I'm a lifelong sports fan, travel addict, and naturalized Bostonian with a weakness for European soccer. I delved into journalism in 2008, went to my first major tournament in 2012 (the Euro), and now am working as a freelance columnist and Per Mertesacker impersonator.

    You Clark Shiteny with your article claiming neuer should win ballon d'or over ronaldo.Realy you claim ronaldo was silent in semis of cl how was he silent when he provided key pass to coentrao which he assisted benzima for madrid lone goal in first leg.and you talk of champs league final yet in that game ronaldo had 4 key passes,1 assist and a goal and also won possession which led to bale's goal despite playing injured.so tell me clark where was neuer in semis of cl???you claim ronaldo's goal were meaningless but fail to remember whn he didnt play in quarterfinal 2nd leg vs dortmand madrid nearly lost if not for his goal in 1st leg.and for the world cup muller contributed 8 goals for germany in assist and scores,which shows he was just important as lahm,neuer,kroos etc.and for the record castrol rated kroos higher than any other player in world cup...so you statements for neuer are just poor hate and bias just to discredit ronaldo.no basis of fair analysis at all.

    dear clark.
    i enjoy reading your articles every morning. and thus it really pain me to see your work stolen.
    yesterday you did an article about how Dortmund is going through his first crisis during club era.
    i was going through the Arabic version of goal.com . and to my surprise your article is neatly translated and published under some other guy name. i'm gonna provide you with the link. and will let follow up from here. as i said im a big bayern fan and i do love your writings. please continue.

    Clark, you have a good insight on European soccer (pretty impressive for a Bostonian, I went crazy looking for a football buddy while I was there). Your articles have great content, but it just doesn't flow too well, IMO. Just a little feedback here, I'm not an internet bully. And yeah, your Bio does need some makeover. I want to know more about you! :)

    Hey, Clark!

    I have a quick question for you. Why does B/R's Dortmund homepage have links to Mario Goetze and Robert Lewandowski's Instagram accounts? For instance, right now we're getting a bunch of pictures of Lewy in Bayern gear and training with them on the Dortmund homepage, which isn't exactly the most pleasant thing for fans to be looking at. Not to mention the fact that for a lot of fans, it's hard not to feel sad whenever we see Goetze. I don't know whether you'd have any power to change this, but could you perhaps try to change this? I figured I should go to you about this since you're basically the #1 Bundesliga person on here.

    If you can't do anything about this, that's fine, but I and other fans would appreciate it if you could perhaps try to get this changed.

    Thanks very much! Can't wait for the new season, by the way! I really like your work!

    Dear Clark,

    Many a reporter have taken to calling the respective team of a country by its native name (Selecao; L’ equipe, etc.) in their reporting. More and more articles refer to the German side as Die Mannschaft. Nobody in Germany calls the national team “die Mannschaft”. It’s either Nationalelf or Nationalmannschaft. In your July 8, 2014 piece “Germany Justify Joachim Low's Decision-Making in Stunning Win Over Brazil” you don’t use die Mannschaft but rather the other to Nationalelf and Nationalmannschaft. Thanks for getting it right and for not being as pathetic as many of your colleagues who want to show some local expertise but just have it wrong.
    I enjoy your writing!
